iMove Freely is injury prevention and corrective exercises. It is based on a branch of biomechanics that helps injury prevention and optimal perfomance (no matter what your fitness level is).
Our body's movments are governed by two forms of biomechanics - intrinsic and extrinsic. iMove Freely concentrates on the intrinsic biomechancis:
- Extrinsic biomechanics concentrates on analsying the performance of a movement or task, for example, getting up and down from a chair, in an optimal mechanically effcient way.
- Intrinsic biomechanics is how the body works mechanically during the performance of a movement or task. This has a major impact on how the body compensates during the performance of Extrinsic Biomechanical movements or tasks.
- Often the body is merely compensating for intrinsic biomechanical faults during functional tasks and the more we practice those tasks or movements, the more we have to compensate and so the risk of injury increases. Sometimes during functional movement patterns we are simply grooving our body to compensate for our intrinsic biomechanical faults, whereas we should be reducing the need to compensate by correcting the causes, not merely working around the problem.
In a nutshell - we don't have good body movement, so everything we do compounds these negative movement patterns and thus pain/dysfunction.
But.. there is something we can do about it.
By testing four key areas of your body using specific, non-invasive and reproducable techniqes we can see which areas of your body are affected (and therefore unbalanced), and can then correct them.
Would you believe that your right hip is connected to your left shoulder? And pain in one can come from the other?
Well - it can! Click here for more information about the iMove Freely course
